Scott Feldman is 7-6 in 2013 and went 4-1 with a 2.25 ERA in May.
The Baltimore Orioles are in the South side of Chicago as they prepare to begin a three-game series with the White Sox. But before Tuesday night’s game the Orioles acquired right-handed starting pitcher Scott Feldman in a trade with the North side Chicago Cubs, who made three trades Tuesday.
The trade sent pitchers Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop and two international bonus slots to the Cubs for Feldman and minor league catcher Steve Clevenger, who was optioned to triple-A Norfolk after the deal.
In 15 starts this season, Feldman is 7-6 with a 3.46 ERA — Chris Tillman currently leads O’s starters with a 3.68 ERA. His seven wins are the second most on the Baltimore staff, tied with Jason Hammel.
“He’s a proven veteran starting pitcher,” said Dan Duquette, Orioles Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations. “And he should help stabilize our rotation in the second half of the season.”

In the past I’ve written on a handful of occasions about how sometimes I like to just get lost playing with Barry Bonds‘ statistics. It’s not that I didn’t appreciate Bonds’ performances at the time — it’s that I think it can take years to appreciate what he did fully. One could make it his life’s pursuit to arrive at a true understanding and appreciation of Bonds’...

Since 2011, the Orioles have acquired Chris Davis, Tommy Hunter, Pedro Strop and Taylor Teagarden from the Texas Rangers.
In using Strop to acquire Scott Feldman, who pitched in Arlington from 2005-2012, the O’s are betting on another player the Texas Rangers really didn’t want—he was simply a free agent signee of the Cubs last offseason.
It was only a matter of time before the Chicago Cubs started selling off assets, and with the trade deadline still a few weeks away, the word was that they were going to get started very early. It turns out, those whispers were true, as the Cubs and the Baltimore Orioles agreed to a pretty significant trade on Tuesday afternoon.
